In brief: See Urologist

Depends on what urodynamics showed.
Nerve issues can cause over and under active bladders. Get the cysto and then follow advice. Good meds to calm bladder down if that is the issue. On the other hand, if your bladder is hypoactive there are some things you can consider (bethanachol, interstim etc.).

In brief: Time

If it is related to your disc herniation, you can get better up to one year after your surgery.
You might want to consider a repeat MRI to ensure the canal has been completely decompressed. There are also medications that can help as well, and you are doing the right thing to rule out other potential causes. Thanks.
